I already used my Audible credits downloading Ready Player One and The Night Circus, which I just finished a half hour ago (and was really great!). I'm not sure I'd tackle a Neal Stephenson book in audio format, although I hear Reamde is pretty accessible (in other words: not anything like The Baroque Cycle).
Still. I have books sitting around that are from the new books section at the public library (meaning I only had two weeks to start with), on loan from other libraries through interlibrary loan (and with short checkout periods, no renewals allowed), or books I need to read before I have a discussion.
Here is what is on my "must return to the library soon" pile:
- On Canaan's Side (longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and although it wasn't shortlisted, I still want to read it)
- The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood (I think I read about this in the New York Times, or maybe Wired Magazine)
- Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think (recommended by Happy Herbivore in an entry about vegan weight loss
- The Thing Around Your Neck (short stories by Adichie, I meant to read this before I did a research session with the African Short Story class and there's still time!)
- African Short Stories (I've made it through West Africa so far)
- Stand on Zanzibar (due back to another library soon, but I only have about 100 pages left)
- Rainbows End (due back to another library, started today, wanted to read it before listening to two podcasts discussing it)
